Apple iWatch Announcement Could Bring Revolutionary New Payment System
NEW YORK ( LowCards.com) -- The Apple Worldwide Developers Conference in San Francisco begins today, and one of the latest rumors for a big announcement is that an Apple iWatch with a near-field communication chip will be introduced.
This might not sound like a big deal, but it could be the start of the largest revolution in financial payments since the credit card.
An Apple iWatch is not just a watch with a video screen. No matter what Dick Tracy would lead you to believe, the screen on a watch would be really too small for any useful video application.
But imagine adding an NFC chip and Touch ID to the rumored Apple iWatch. This would enable you to replace all your credit cards and give you the most secure and easiest form of mobile payment on the planet, all in one device.
